30 Days of Pinterest – Day 15
I tend to go through reading spurts, going months on end without even picking up a single book. Although I love reading, I just get so busy with life that it falls to the wayside. It usually isn’t until I’m prepping to go away on vacation that I start thinking about which books to read. Since I’m currently prepping for a little vacation coming up in June (and at a loss of what I want to read while I’m away), I was so excited to learn about What Should I Read Next on Pinterest!
The website takes books that you like, or authors that you prefer, and uses them to provide you with a list of recommended books just for you! It’s a great way to discover new gems that you may not have known about otherwise!
The Project Process:
How does it work? Easy as 1-2-3!
- Visit whatshouldireadnext.com
- Type in a book title or author that you love. Since I fell in love with the Hunger Games during my last vacation, I thought I would use this title to help me find another equally easy & enjoyable read.
- Select the book/author from the selected list that shows up
- Review the list of recommendations selected just for you!
The picture above shows only about 1/4 of all the book titles on the recommended list, and I must say, most of them look fairly promising! I have read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and although I found it to be more of a mature read, I still enjoyed it very much.
I’ve requested The Maze Runner by James Dashner from our local library, as I haven’t heard of this one before and it ranked fairly high on the recommendation list. I suppose it will be a true test of how accurate this app really is!
If purchasing from Amazon is more your thing (rather than borrowing from the library), the info/buy buttons will take you directly to the Amazon listing. Even if you don’t plan on purchasing it, it’s a great way to learn more about what the book is about, and see what other readers are saying about it!
Do you ever have trouble choosing a book to read? Do you have a favourite book that you recommend to everyone you meet? We’d love to hear what your favourites are!
